I have not been on here in a very long time. Decided that now, with time O'plenty, spring break, I would do a brief update. I recieved my 5 year chip a couple of weeks back. Hard to imagine my life before I got and stayed sober. My ex is still bitter, however, I get along with her new husband so we work things out without her. My kids are growing up fast. My oldest graduates from HS next year. I am still single, no GF, no prospects. Got a puppy a few months back. Dont know if that was the best idea I have had. I finally moved into a much larger town house. I have plenty of room now for aquariums. I have built one system. I am currently building a much larger system. Sounds like I have cash, but truely, I am still pretty broke after child support is paid. I am still teaching highschool. I have 11 more years to go to retire. I am already making plans. Most retirees have troulbe living on a reduced income. I have been practicing that, not by choice, for 5 years now. Not debt free, but manageable. I am taking more things on faith now a days. Been getting closer to Gods word. Spending most of my drinving hours listening to sermons from a wide spectrum of Christian theologians. Thats it for now. I am not happy, but I am not sad either. Just am. Some might call it boring, I call it stable.
